    Yes, it is quite common in Japan and my city.
    It calls "compensated dating", but mostly you can pay more money to buy "sexy".

    Fake friend!
    It's more like a treatment for depression...

    Imagine that, something even more exploitative than the sex industry and capitalism itself. The first taking advantage of the feelings of loneliness and depression and isolation which can be caused by the latter two. Rentafriend.com, huh? I'm guessing thegutter.com was taken. This website encourages me to reconsider craigslist.

    I tend to think of friendships as assets, not liabilities. Though certainly with some I did wind up paying for it.

    That's what they said for escort services....that you're paying for a date, and what happens during the date, i.e. sex, is because the escort liked you, not because you're paying him/her for sex.

    Shady at best? I know

    It's kind of tempting to hire someone and try to be enough of an off putting asshole that they'll end the meeting and void the payment.

    Not really. Hell, I'm saving up for that for my 70s. Eventually, if I don't wind up with a partner (and my experience is that the bastids die on ya anyway), I'm gonna have to pay for it; I know that. But I mean for just company? Geez. You should at least be able talk to one of your neighbors for free. Buy a fucking dog and say hello to people as you walk.

    This is crazy. The next thing you know people will be paying for water.

    Intriguing concept.

    Demand lavishly rewards supply.

    Supply cannot be depleted, merely constrained to time blocks. Albeit, even this limitation of scale leaves open the possibility of creative counter solutions.

    Capitalism at it's finest.

    The reason people pay hookers is because they want sex. Why would someone go to a whore for the sparking conversation?

    I don't see the incentive. I'd rather spend time with real friends than a fake friend.
    I wouldn't want to be a rental friend either. I can only imagine the kinds of people you would have to deal with who couldn't get a friend normally.

    This is kinda sad. I suck at making friends, but I would never do this.

    I mean seriously, who would pay when you could just go out and make friends?

    Yeah, it looks like they are taking advantage of people. You know, since they are such losers, lets take their money too...
